Its one thing to gamble a couple hundred bucks on something you may or may not like or may or may not work right......but $1,400.... on something that would be impossible to resell even if I liked it (Ebay fees, Paypal fees, shipping costs, nightmarish Craigslist tire kickers).....NO THANKS. $500 I would throw away and take a gamble....but $1,400....
And before the hyperventelators say...but....but 4k120hz IS NOT CHEAP.... well I am typing this reply on a Zisworks X39 4k120 which cost me $490 total.
Well, the MSRP is 1,290,000 KRW, which is about $1,200. The base cost plus shipping, as well as a cut for the person selling it on eBay, and you're at $1,400.
<--Big sale from this seller

Honestly, the biggest draw to these panels is their size. I wanted to make the move to 4K, but I knew that I didn't like dealing with scaling in Windows, so just took a chance with the 42" UHD420, and I absolutely love this display on my desk—for both productivity and gaming.
So, I sent a message to etradekorea (the only seller of the display on eBay at the moment), and here's what they said:
Is the screen glossy or anti-glare?
The panel type is semi glare.
Are both DP inputs required for 120Hz 10-bit?
There is no problem connecting only one of them.
What is the pixel policy of this particular auction? Is it considered to be perfect pixel?
If there are more than 10 defects, we will refund or exchange (This is the manufacturer's policy).
Note: To use this monitor at 120Hz, you must use the Windows 10 and al least you must use your graphics card GTX 1050 or over GTX 1050.
I'm not entirely sure what "semi glare" means in this case, as it could mean that it's glossy, so there's somewhat (semi) of a glare, or that there is anti-glare coating on it. Here is a still
from an un-boxing video on YouTube of the original UHD430 display, so it may be safe to assume that's the level of gloss on the screen.
